Publisher's Summary

Book One of the Submissive Trilogy

More than 8 Million Reads Online

The first in Tara Sue Me’s seductive and scandalous series that has enthralled millions....

Abby King has a secret fantasy.

New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.

After only one weekend with the Master, Abby knows she needs more, and fully submits to Nathaniel’s terms. But despite the pleasure he takes in Abby’s willing spirit, the Nathaniel hidden behind the rules remains cold and distant.

As Abby falls deeper into his tantalizing world of power and passion, she fears that Nathaniel’s heart may be beyond her reach - and that her own might be beyond saving....

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Good but lacking"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If it's on sale yes, but save your credit for something better.


    Any additional comments?

    There's nothing to make this book stand out. The male character isn't as dominate as I think he should of been especially in a book titled in this manner. Also, this is a trilogy, but at the end it doesn't leave you wanting more. Like I stated eariler, this would be a good one to get on sale. This is not a "WOW" book.

    Story
    "Better than I thought 1"
    Where does The Submissive rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    On a scale of 1 - 10 I would say 5


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Abby's friend Felicia because she was out spoken and showed true love and concern for here friend.


    What about Angelica Lee’s performance did you like?

    She was good, expressive and brought the character to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Powerful story of BDSM


    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually like romance or in this case erotic stories but I decided to give it a try after reading Fifty Shades of Grey. This one is much better then "Luke" and "The Club" I thought they were terrible. However, I still liked Fifty Shades of Grey much better.

    "Grabs you from the start"
    Would you listen to The Submissive again? Why?

    Probably not. It isn't something I would listen to over again unless it was a read for the book club or something.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Submissive?

    I don't have a memorable moment. I just liked how the book gets into the story from the start.


    Have you listened to any of Angelica Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me want more and want to know more about Nathaniel. I quickly started book 2 right after.


    Any additional comments?

    no

    This was an ok read for me. It's your typical Dom/sub relationship book. I really don't have much more to add.

    "OMG I LOVE THIS NEW SERIES!!!!"

    OH Yes! Nathaniel West is so FSOGish. I love it! Abby was not an Anna but knew exactly what she wanted and and got it. There was the Best PowPows that I have read in a while. I was hooked from the beginning and was sad when it ended. I glad that book two is coming out soon and already preordered. :D The storyline was good and the narrator rocked all the voices and brought each role to life. So happy I got this book for my audibles collection. Buy this book or use a credit trust me its worth it. Happy Listening!

    "I tried really hard to enjoy this book..."
    Any additional comments?

    It's probably pointless to point out that this was written BEFORE 50 Shades !!!
    The relationship between a D/s always sends my senses tingling, leaving me wanting and anticipating the submission. Sadly, I did not experience that with The Submissive.Not even going there with the BDSM tag!! 'cos BDSM it wasn't.
    I couldn't for the life of me connect with Abby! I need to feel connected to the characters, and feel the connection between them to really enjoy a book, and at least for me, that wasn't there.
